Citizenship Quotes


Citizenship is certainly something we take for granted. Born into the rights and privileges of a certain country, we often stand in wonder that others would do anything to have our freedoms, granted automatically through a simple birthright. Through citizenship quotes, we are reminded how precious our rights and freedoms are, how others struggled to secure them and how fragile they can be. Citizenship quotes help us appreciate how fortunate we are to live in a land that others in the world would readily endure great sacrifice and hardship, just for the chance to become a citizen of such a great land.
